Bollywood singer Udit Narayan dedicated a song to Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath during a meeting with members of the film fraternity in Lucknow to discuss the proposed Film City that will be made in the state.

Narayan dedicated a version of Lagaan’s “Mitwa” to the UP CM during the meeting as others looked on.

The meeting also saw the presence of Vijayendra Prasad, Raju Shrivastava, Ashoke Pandit, Kailash Kher, Manoj Joshi, Nitin Desai, Vinod Bachchan, Pragya Kumar and Anup Jalota. Ravi Kishan, Soundarya Rajinikanth, Anupam Kher, Atul Agnihotri, Paresh Rawal, Manoj Muntasir and Satish Kaushik attended the meeting virtually.

At the meeting, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath unveiled an ambitious plan to set up a film city in Uttar Pradesh and rolled out an open offer to film fraternity to come to the state.

He also announced that 1,000 acre of land has been identified in Gautam Budh Nagar by Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Authority (YEIDA) where the Dedicated Infotainment Zone will be set up with all world-class civil, public and technological facilities, a statement from the chief minister’s office stated.

“The chief minister said the proposed site is just an hour away from New Delhi and very close to the proposed international airport at Jewar, which is going to be the biggest greenfield airport of Asia,” it stated.

The statement said it is also close to “Agra, the city of Taj Mahal, Mathura, the birthplace of Lord Krishna, and near the proposed logistic hub in Noida, the proposed dry port and freight corridor, thus providing all facilities of transport and movement.”

“Then the honourable Chief Minister said that there is land available in Noida sector 30, and said that they will give us a subsidy and the land will be provided to us on a discounted rate. He has taken this initiative because it is a matter of employment. The film city will give jobs to thousands of people in this region. We also had to find a place where there are airports and hotels, so this place is apt. We also chose Noida as a location because we will get Vrindavan, Mathura and Agra as locations for shoots.”

He added, “The CM noted down all the suggestions and issues and has told us that this will be a world-class film city and studio.”
